Met Office: Isaac now a weak tropical storm

TROPICAL UPDATE A lot to track in the Atlantic even the Gulf gets in on the action

Sustained winds on Tuesday afternoon approached 105 miles per hour, making it a very strong Category 2 storm, though it was expected to gradually weaken over cooler waters.

Florence remains a powerful Category 4 hurricane and may strengthen further today and tonight.

The National Hurricane Center said Wednesday that Subtropical Storm Joyce has formed in the north Atlantic, but is not now a threat to land.

"As we enter the more active phase of the hurricane season residents should have their hurricane preparedness plans well established and in place, and be ready to complete final arrangements such as shuttering and moving to safe shelter if necessary". "However, upper-level winds are forecast to become a little more conducive for development, and a tropical depression could still form Thursday or Friday before the system reaches the western Gulf Coast".

"In addition to these prolonged wind impacts, we are still looking at up to 40" of rain in the region through early next week, which would cause life-threatening flooding.

On Sunday alone there will be about two inches of rainfall.

The waves are produced by being trapped along with incredibly strong winds moving in the same direction as the storm's motion. Heavy rain and winds from Olivia downed trees, knocked out power and prompted evacuations of several homes on Hawaii's Maui island but spared the state widespread damage Wednesday.

A National Weather Service forecaster in Wilmington, North Carolina, said: 'This will likely be the storm of a lifetime for portions of the Carolina coast.

A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area within 36 hours. Tropical storm conditions are possible within the tropical storm watch area, also beginning late this morning.

At 11 a.m., the center of the system was about 190 miles east-southeast of Kingston, Jamaica.

The implications of a major landfalling hurricane are devastating. There are 5.25 million people under hurricane warnings and watches and another 4.89 million under tropical storm watches and warnings.
